Functional Window Sill

A new addition to the window of my Sitting Room is a mini book rack.  YES WHY NOT?  I used an old antique wooden tray to keep magazines or books.  It is so convenient while relaxing you can just grab on a book or a magazine.

And here on my kind of discovery you can see my favorite magazines, “Good housekeeping”.   Good Housekeeping also has online source for advice about food, diet, beauty, health, family and home virtually here.  You can subscribe this book online too.

Well, inside the mini book rack placed is this adorable FengShui Elephant.  
This was gifted by a very good friend of mine on my last birthday.

The elephant has long been a symbol of strength, power, virility, longevity, fidelity, dignity, intelligence and wisdom and is considered a sacred creature. In many cultures, the elephant is admired as the most marvelous creature in creation.  

In Feng Shui, the elephant is used for a variety of reasons: LOVE, FERTILITY, EDUCATION AND GOODLUCK.

chirping birds..

On my last visit to doon,  I found some old wooden birds lying in the store.Which I couldn't ignore thrown away like that.  Although I didn't knew how I am going to use them, but after coming from doon they kept lying in my house for a month or so.  Then yesterday just thinking of giving some creative work to my daughter,  we both planned to paint it in black.  And she helped me painting it BLACK. We left it for drying overnite.  In the morning the first thing after coming from the garden,  WHERE TO HANG THEM???  At first we both agreed on putting them in her room,  but at last I thought  of hanging them in our dining area,  matching the decor of the room.  And they came out to be RAVISHING BEAUTIFUL.
but the light in the room didn't favoured me,  the pictures came out were just please bear wid me

Buddha love

I don't know why but any statue of Lord Buddha fascinates me and I just cant resist myself from buying it.
This one is my latest buy.  From the time I saw this figure.  Looking carefully you feel as if it is so expressive and makes you feel calm and quiet.  Deep into the state of meditation.

Happy weekend!

I love my India

Although my house has a lot of contemporary styling.  But still I adore the typical Indian Decor.  So somewhere around I try to mix n match with both the styles.  Here's the example of my recently styled called PEEDA's corner.

Sitting on them is so relaxing and comfortable that I absolutely forgot my Sofa.  So comfy to sit for hours and work on my laptop.

An Outdoor Styling

I recently picked up some smart pot holders from Sahranpur on my trip to Dehradun-Roorkee.

 Although you will find them quite common but they still fascinated me.  With an offstyle CAT they looked so different.

What else a coffee table asks for CANDLES, BOOKS and GREENERY.
